Wilmer Flores, the Mets' No. 4 prospect, hit two home runs Friday, but Triple-A Tacoma came back to defeat Las Vegas, 6-4.

Friday was the third multihomer game of Flores' career. He finished the night 4-for-5 and scored three runs. In 25 games at Triple-A this season, he is hitting .289 with a .433 slugging percentage.

Flores played shortstop Friday, the first time he had started a game at the position since suffering a jammed finger Sunday. After playing all over the infield during his professional career, he has been the club's primary shortstop this season.

Tacoma's eighth-inning comeback spoiled a solid start by right-hander Logan Verrett, the Mets' No. 20 prospect. He allowed one run on five hits in seven innings. He struck out two batters and walked two.
